Only 30min from Munich there is a place where you can forget the buzz of the city and the daily stress, Hohenkammer Castle. The castle, a perfect example of the Bavarian renaissance style, is surrounded by almost untouched Bavarian nature and forms part of the real estate holding of the Münchner Rück cooperative since 2003.

Hohenkammer Castle is an established seminar and event centre with restaurants, and a hotel and spa. Part of the extensive refurbishment works saw the renovation of approximately 700sqm of parquet floors in the dining room as well as the seminar centre stair cases. The parquet supplier Parketbörse Freising together with the processing parquet-laying contractor Zierau GbR from Aschheim chose the “Sophisticated Combination” from the Pallmann brand for the re-sealing of the old oak mosaic effect parquet. The system comprises the filler Pall-X Kitt, the primer Pall-X 325 and the two-component laquer Pall-X 98. Hohenkammer Castle, experiences high levels of foot traffic, and requires a floor finish that would stand up well to the rigours of its use; this combination of products provides the optimum protection against wear to the floor.

The joint filling with filler PALL-X Kitt directly followed the sanding of the original parquet with a drum-sanding machine; the water-based joint-paste solution provides good endurance and elasticity, which significantly reduces
shrinkage in the joints.

The process of parquet floor priming started directly after a short drying time and the necessary floor sanding with grit 100 abrasives and essential thorough cleaning in preparation for priming.

The Pallmann product Pall-X 325 has been applied as a prime coat in Hohenkammer Castle. This water-based 1K-Parquet primer, with a very good filling capacity, was applied to the area using a roller for water-based lacquers by the professionals of the company Zierau. Approximately two hours later the floor was dry and the team were able to proceed with the application of the first sealing coat.

As protection for the oak parquet with mosaic effect was imperative, the two-component parquet sealant Pall-X was a perfect match with its strong scratch and wear resistant properties; application rollers for water- based lacquers proved once more to be the right tools for this step.

Beginning with the edge of the area, the coat application alternated between rolling in line the grain and across the grain; this first sealant coat was allowed to dry overnight.

The following day started with an intermediate sanding using a mesh disc grit 100. To achieve an even higher surface finish, the professional parquet layers applied the high viscosity, filling-gel Pall-X Gel prior to the second floor sealing step. The product was applied using a rust free flexible filling knife and provided a perfect pore filling solution for the coated area the gel was then over-lacquered within 30 minutes with the sealant Pall-X 98.

The newly sealed, original parquet endows the dining room with a fresh appearance which, when combined with the protection against the high levels of foot traffic for this busy seminar venue will ensure a long life
and stunning appearance for the parquet floors in Hohenkammer Castle.
